Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

Attachment is at the heart of family life and at the heart of foster care and adoption. Attachment theory and research provide a vital developmental framework for making sense of the behaviour and relationship strengths and difficulties that children bring from their complex backgrounds. It also offers a most valuable resource for understanding the kind of caregiving in foster care and adoptive families that can enable children to feel more trusting, confident, competent and secure.

This book will be an indispensable resource for practitioners, foster carers, adoptive parents and all those seeking to ensure that children in need of family care get the very best experience possible and that foster carers and adoptive parents get the support they need and deserve.
